1. I had a wonderful time at the recent Jamboree. I had the pleasure to
be an ASM with a contingent troop from East Tennessee. Our council,
the Great Smoky Mtn Council brought 3 troops and hopes to bring 4 in
2. I bought a pair of Goretex-like rain pants as soon as I got home from
Jambo. I had a cheap vinyl pair, but I couldn't put them on without
taking off my boots. The rainstore on Friday was so bad (How BAD was
it?) that my scout socks wicked rain into my Goretex boots and flooded
them. Fortunately the new rain pants were on sale.
3. Louise Mandrell did an excellent job at the Closing show. She figured
out what turned on the boys and hit it. I've heard that her show was
the best since '85 when the Beach Boys came.
4. Does anyone know of a Jamboree critique or evaluation sheet? Our
subcamp staff didn't know of any such animal. I would like to pass
my $0.02 worth of both good and bad on to National by some means.
